Cheshire Cat Cake (Alice in Wonderland)

Hi there,

Last weekend was Maya’s 6th birthday. She had a Mad Hatter party theme (Alice in Wonderland). This is the cake I made to make her day even more special. I heard it was nice and yummy! Yay!

It was a 10 inch buttercream coated cake with little handmade fondant decorations all around.

Hope you like it and you get some inspiration.

Have a nice week!

Ben And Little Kingdom Cake

Hi there,

Ben and Little Kingdom is  a children’s television series very popular amongst kids. Ben, one of the main characters, is a young and friendly elf. The most remarkable features in this character are his big head, angular nose, pointed ears and his blue hat with an oak leaf sticking out.

Joshua and Edward, two adorable little siblings, were celebrating their birthday together. The party’s theme was Ben and Little Kingdom, and I was so glad to contribute with this colourful fondant cake to make their day even happier!

Ben is sitting on a ladybird called Gaston. We also can see the Little Castle. In front of him, there’s a delicious picnic. Everything was made out of sugarpaste. I just love modelling!

Also some matching mini cupcakes…

Hope you liked it!

Have a nice day.

Rapunzel Cake

Hi there,

Here’s a handmade Rapunzel cake I made last week for Martina’s 4th birthday party. Girly, pinky & pretty :- )

Rapunzel’s long and blond braid was going around the whole cake. It was made out of yellow fondant, therefore it was completely edible, like everything else in that cake!

Have a lovely week!

Aladdin and Jasmine Cake

Hi there,

This is the fondant cake I made last week for Juju’s 5th birthday party. I heard she loved it, which makes me feel so glad! :- D

I think the combination of colours is quite pretty for this theme. Purple, blue and gold.

To decorate this 10 inch cake, I mainly used fondant (to cover the cake and the columns, to model the clouds…), gum paste (to make the plaque, letters and scrolls), and royal icing (to pipe the plaque’s outline and the bottom dots).

Thanks for reading and see you in the next post! I will post some Star Wars Cupcakes soon :- )

Winnie The Pooh Cake

Hi there,

This is the last cake I’ve made this year. Hopefully more beautiful and challenging cakes are coming for the next 2016!

Winnie the Pooh is the main character in this yellow cake surrounded by bees. I modelled this topper out of sugarpaste. I was pretty happy with the result. His face is so cute! He seems so happy splashing the honey! Lol.

The rest of the cake was also decorated with fondant, but for the grass (which was hand piped with green buttercream).

Wishing you all a very happy and sweet New Year!

Minnie Mousse Fondant Toddler

Hi there,

This is the fondant figurine I made after taking a modelling class with the great and talented teacher Joly Diaz. I really love her style, really cute and cartoonish. I got great inspiration from her!

It’s a toddler wearing a minnie mousse costume!

Despite it’s a big topper (7.5 inch tall -19 cm-), it’s not very heavy due to the use of foam balls under the fondant (technique that lightens both head and body).

She says HELLOOO!!

Hope you like it!

Have a good Sunday.

Tinkerbell Cake 2

Hi there,

This is the second Tinkerbell cake I’ve made recently. I can confirm that Tinkerbell is being one of the superstars in the kids’ parties! Not to mention Frozen or Minions too, hehe!

My previous Tinkerbell cake was covered in fondant, whilst this one was iced and piped with buttercream. Both of them had tiny cupcakes matching the main cake colours.

The girl’s mum wanted a cake in pastel tones, specially a nice green one. She also liked the idea of placing a fondant heart on top of it.

 


Here’s a picture of both Tinkerbell cakes for you to compare and choose which one you’d like the most! Oh my, I couldn’t choose!

Buttercream Tinkerbell Cake. Pastel Colours.

Fondant Tinkerbell Cake. Pink & Purple Colours.

Have a nice week!

Dougal Cake (Magic Roundabout)

Hi there,

Guess who it is…

Not yet? And now?

No?? What about this?

Yeah!! I’m sure you know already. If not, don’t worry… I just knew him few days ago!

Last week was the first time I heard about Dougal, from Magic Roundabout TV show (must be because I didn’t watch it in my country when being a child). Despite he looked not familiar to me at all, I was asked to make a simple birthday cake with his face!! Such a cute and hairy dog!!

I hope you like it!

See you soon,

Frozen Themed Party

Hi there,

Last week I made these Frozen themed treats for a four year-old girl, since her birthday party was completely based on the amazing film Frozen!

According to her mother, she was very very excited with her Elsa Cake.

It consisted of a real doll inserted in a dress-shaped cake. I carved a round four tier cake to form the shape.  To get more realistic fabric effects, I covered the cake with fondant. The upper part of the doll was also dressed with sugarpaste. And this was the result! My first doll cake!

I matched the cake with some Frozen themed cookies and tiny cupcakes. To get the snow effect, I sprinkled granulated sugar over wet royal icing.

And here are the cupcakes! I tried to get really cold shades and colours to transmit the essence of Frozen. I also used crystal sugar to make the ice effect.

I hope you liked it. Don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you have any question!

Have a nice week.

Jolly Möh & Pink Floyd Cake… An hilarous combination!

Hi there,

Last week I made a very interesting birthday cake, which I wanted to share with all of you. The person the cake was for, is a big fan of Pink Floyd’s music and Mario Benedetti’s poetry and she loves the cute Jolly Möh sheep and the white roses. So I designed a cake consisting on a single round tier with a Jolly Möh sheep on top wearing a Pink Floyd t-shirt and listening their music! To go with it, also made some hand piped cookies with Mario Benedetti’s verses! And, if that wasn’t enough, I also prepared a bunch of cupcakes toped with… guess what… Yes! More Pink Floyd and Jolly Möh’s! Overall, a very unusual combination that turned out to be pretty fun! Don’t you think? ;)

I coated an 8″ round vanilla cake with scrumptious dark chocolate ganache and pink rolled fondant, trying to make noticeable sharp edges (I’m a bit obsessed with that!!).

Then, I added the rest of the decorations. I mixed 2D & 3D details to emphasize some of them. I really like the earphones that Jolly Möh is using, as well has her t-shirt, haha! She’s also holding a white rose as a gift for the birthday girl. As you can see for her position, she needs a big hug!! Hug me!! ;)

It was particularly challenging to fit Mario Benedetti’s verses on a single cookie! But with a bit of concentration and steady hand, I could pipe them with white royal icing. My friend Mónica advised me that it would be a good idea to pipe white letters over sky blue cookies. She was right!

By the way, I’ve something on the works for Halloween. Something that I haven’t tried before and been wanted to do for a while now… Spooky!! Stay tuned :)

See you,

Sara
